Thanks for the samples. I do find it surprising the way that people want to rush to judgement about every new camera and instantly either "love it" or "hate it". Its all so binary and tribal. The tone of many comments is very aggressive and border line outright rude. I hope that people wouldn't speak to each other face to face in this way. It makes using the site so much less pleasant for everyone. Anyway thanks for the samples and I look forward to the full review. If you have a chance to make any comparisons to the LX5 in the review I for one would be grateful.
